Home Learning 22.1.21

Good morning and happy Friday!

Thank you for all your positive emails this week, we know learning like this is not ideal but you are embracing it and still working so hard!

We are so proud of each and every one of you and we know that parents are also working so hard juggling full time jobs with home-learning with usually more than just you! Thank you parents!!!

What can you do for your parents today to say thank-you?

Could you make them card?

How about a massage?

Could you tidy your room (if you don’t do this already)?

What about a cup of tea?

Maybe just give them ‘5 minutes piece’ by quietly reading or colouring.

Let us know the types of things that you do (get your brothers & sisters involved) – they are superstars!

New ‘my maths’ will be set today! We have been keeping an eye on how many of you are completing this:

5H: 10 children

5P: 8 children

We have also looked at those children who are using TT Rockstars (please ask if you are still struggling to access it!)

5H – 10 children

5P – 20 children

The gallery of all your learning will be going up later today! We have received so many great pieces!

Warm Up:

Hit the Button – Top Marks

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

Today we are going to look at some word problems that use negative numbers:

The temperature on Tuesday is 5 degrees. On Wednesday it is 6 degrees colder. What is the temperature on Wednesday?

  • Highlight the important parts
  • What information do we need? 5 degrees 6 degrees
  • What operation? Well is gets colder so the temperature goes down so it must be subtraction 5 – 6
  • I know this must be a negative answer as the second digit is larger than the first!
  • 5-6 = -1 degrees

Now you have a go:

  1. The temperature on Friday is -7 degrees. The following day the temperature rises by 9 degrees. What is the temperature the following day?

2. The temperature in London is -5 degrees. In Birmingham it is -8 degrees. What is the difference between the 2 temperatures?

3. What is 7 minus 11?

4. How many degrees more is 2 degrees than -2 degrees?

5. Increase -3 by 6

6. What is 3 minus 10?

7. The temperature on Sunday is 4 degrees. The following day it drops by 11 degrees. What is the the temperature on the following day?

More challenging:

  1. In a quiz one point is scored for each correct answer but a point is deducted for every wrong answer. If a team gets five questions right and seven questions wrong what is their final score?

2. In November one day the temperature was 18 degrees. During the night the temperature dropped by 20 degrees. What was the temperature during the night?

3. A skyscraper has floors below as well as above ground. If I start at the fifth floor and go down eight floors how many floors below ground level will I be?

4. One day in December the temperature was 4 degrees. during the night the temperature dropped to -5 degrees. How many degrees colder was it in the night than in the day?

5. In a quiz five points are scored for each correct answer but five points are taken away for every wrong answer. If a team gets seven questions right and 10 questions wrong what is their final score?

6. A skyscraper has floors below as well as many above ground. If I start at the 35th floor and go down 40 floors how many floors below ground level will I be?

7. In a quiz two points are scored for each correct answer but two points are deducted if an answer is wrong. If a team has a score of minus 12, how many correct answers will they need to reach a score of 20?

Carrying Cards

These sixteen children are standing in four lines of four, one behind the other. They are each holding a card with a number on it.
children holding numbers
Each child in blue is holding a number which is four more than the child in the same row wearing red.

The children in yellow shirts each have a number which is double the number of the child in the same row wearing red.

Some of the numbers that the children in red, blue or yellow shirts are holding have got rubbed off. What should the numbers be?

Can you work out how the numbers that the children in green are holding have been worked out?

What are the two missing numbers?

If there was another row of four children standing behind the fourth row, what numbers would they be holding?

Warm Up:

Athletics Activities

Warm up – Please watch this video and follow along with the warm up movements that they are doing. Maybe you could create your own warmup sequence after watching theirs!

I have outlined 6 fun athletic activities that can be done at home with little equipment, please complete each event at least 3 times and try to better your score each go. Do not worry if you can’t do an event because of equipment as I’m sure there are many others you can do! Please let me know if you would like me to make a Lockdown Olympics type competition using these events ☺

60m Dash Shuttle Runs – Create a track with a distance of 20m and mark it using anything that you have. Then start at one side of the track, when told to go sprint for the other line and come back and go back to the other as fast as you can. Meaning you have run 60m!

You can time this using a stopwatch or a phone.

Standing Long Jump – With the track you have created, stand at the start with both feet behind the line and when ready jump as far as you can.

You can measure this using a tape measure. It should be marked from the backs of your feet.

Q – Why do you think it is measured from the back of your feet?

Standing Triple Jump – Again with the track you have created, stand at the start with feet behind the line and when ready perform a triple jump. This should consist of a hop to start (landing on the same leg you take off with), then a skip (landing on the other leg), then a jump to finish landing on both feet.

Here is a video if you are still not sure on how to do this – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=idm5DuQqf7I 

You can measure this using a tape measure. It should be marked from the backs of your feet.

Shot Put – Using the track you have created and a tennis ball sized object place the ball resting on your neck whilst holding It with your strong hand. When ready throw the ball as far as you can and measure from where the ball hits the ground first.

You can measure this using a tape measure.

Q – Why do you think we measure where the ball hits the floor first?

Gymnastics – Create your own sequence of gymnastic floor movements using the picture below. Try to use at least 5 movements in the sequence and think how you could effectively travel between each movement.

Relay – Using the track you have created and a partner, both get ready at the start line with a baton like object such as a stick in the first person’s hand. When ready, the first person sprints to the other line and back. When they get back, they then pass the “baton” to the other runner and they then run to the other side and back as quickly as they can.

You can measure this using a stopwatch or phone.

10 x 20m Shuttle Run – Using the track that you created, get ready at the start line and begin to run 10 lengths of the track (so there and back counts as 2 lengths).

You can measure this using a stopwatch or phone.

Q – How far have you ran in this event?

Q – How far have you ran in all 3 running events added together?

Always keep a positive mindset, it will improve your outlook on the world.
